Mortgaging the future

January 30, 2021

On this week’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat discuss how listeners can plan for Social Security’s funding crisis, the impact of low-interest rates on public pensions, and what rising government debt could do to our future economy. 


Scott and Pat advise a mother of triplets about how her children should invest gifts of $13,000 from their grandmother. A 33-year-old law enforcement officer asks how Social Security’s Windfall Elimination Provision could affect his future benefit. A caller asks if he should invest in passive or actively managed funds. Finally, Scott and Pat speak with a 24-year-old Coloradan who racked up $42,000 in debt and wants to know how he should handle the loans.
